Currently closed



January 5, 2022, 11:59 pm local time


Uniquely for fiscal year 2022 to 2023, Stream Three of the Sport for Social Development in Indigenous Communities (SSDIC) component of the Sport Support Program exclusively funds the Provincial/Territorial Aboriginal Sport Bodies (PTASBs)Footnote1 for their delivery of the initiative.

$2.5 million is available to the 13 PTASBs for projects seeking to deliver sport activities for the expressed purpose of meeting community identified needs and priorities of Indigenous women and girls. It is critical that this priority being given to PTASBs in the interim phase not be considered an indicator that they will retain exclusivity in the longer-term program design and Stream Three eligibility.


To be eligible for funding, your organization must:

  • be a recognized PTASB, for example, a provincial and territorial organization, association or corporation that carries the mandate, as recognized by the Aboriginal Sport Circle, to represent the sport and recreational interests of the largest percentage of Indigenous peoples in that province or territory.
  • demonstrate in its proposals the engagement and collaboration with Indigenous women’s groups or representatives of Indigenous women in the community.

How to Apply?

Applicants are required to:

  • read the Application Guidelines in their entirety
  • meet all eligibility requirements and submit a complete application form to be considered for funding.
